Welcome to my Cottage on the Hill

Welcome to my blog about my Cottage on the Hill. This is going to be a housekeeping blog for my new little home. After failing "homemaking 101" in hubby and I's first home, I intend to tend our new home like a Proverbs 31 and Titus 2 wife should!

This blog will also trace our footsteps as we proceed to close on the house (Closing is May 17) move, redecorate, add to and generally live in our new home. I'll also discuss my gardening as we have a lovely plot of land I can do much with! I'll also post pictures when I can.

The Cottage on the Hill, as I'll temporarily call it for now, is a 1950's bungalow, 1 story with attic and basement. 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a galley kitchen, cute dining room, good sized living room and an enclosed porch. Hubby loves the 2 car garage with workshop and the two large sheds on the property. Currently, the existing landscape consists of a bulb garden, some evergreen shrubs out front, a stone wall, a garden patch, a decorative pond with strawberry patch, a couple of sad apple trees, and an outdoor camp-style fireplace. Surrounding the property are woods and a cornfield.

So, please feel free to drop in and read about our progress. Critique my housekeeping skills (nicely please) and even help us name our property (in the near future). Feel free to leave comments. You don't have to be a member to do so!

Thank you, and God bless,
